What is your history with sewing?

I have sewn since I was about 12 or 13 years old, but have only begun to improve my construction and fitting skills within the last 8-9 years.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I own a couple of Pfaff machines, a Babylock embroidery machine that makes great buttonholes, a serger, a coverstitch machine, and a Singer Featherweight that I have yet to lay hands on! Also a Babylock Jane, which is a tiger to sew with and a joy.

When you make a mistake while sewing, what do you do?

Grab my cadillac seam ripper, and remember that everyone makes mistakes. If I have been working too long, I stop and take a break, especially if it is wine-thirty P.M.

What's your favorite thing you've ever sewn? Can we see a picture?

I am honestly trying to make that favorite thing, but a few of my projects are on my blog matchingnotches.blogspot.com, and on my PatternReview.com profile.

If skill, time, and resources were no issue, what would you sew right now?

Pants, a duster/trench coat out of that custom printed black silk dupioni I've had for a while, and a rack full of vintage dresses.

Introduction

I am a longtime sewist and enjoy being with others who share this same interest.

What Roseana A. is saying about this Meetup Group

So glad we continue to meet people who are sewing clothing at home!
